I have only one  32bit laptop that is working well. Excellent keyboard. I some time ago switched from LL3.8 32 bit to Debian 9 with non free drivers etc.  as I found the Debian to be  "lighter" with quicker responses etc.  Works very well as a basic machine.   .  Supposedly will be supported until June 2022?
Have not as yet tried Debian 10 32 bit,   Not therefore sure what effect it will have on performance.https://wiki.debian.org/LTS

That's great.
The thing is, I use euphoria 3.1.1 in development ( http://rapideuphoria.com/ ) and I like it a lot better than openeuphoria ( https://openeuphoria.org ).
In addition, unlike the eternal beta 4 version of OE, Eu 3.1.1 works fine on all wins from 95 to 10 and is even included in the basic freedos package, but only 32-bit and is not built with gcc > 6.0 (i.e. ubuntu 16, debian 9, ...).

Whenever possible I'll switch to OE 4, but so far I'm fine with 3.1.1. Only fewer and fewer people are interested in 32-bit level systems like ubuntu 16, debian 9, ... and I don't think it's fair.

  • Linux Lite: 3.8 32bit
Welcome, I think you will find the forum members very helpful with any questions you have.

I use LL 3.8 (32 bit) exclusively for all the older and even some of the newer laptops I use for my study group youth in South Africa.  I chose to stick with this for the following reasons:
1) because people are usually donating older laptops the majority have been 32 bit (although I am now getting more 64 bit ones) and most commonly the HDs are smallish (50 GB to 250 GB).
2) I really like "Systemback" and the ability to make restore points as I have had to resort to using these at times.
3) Until I no longer have 32 bit machines it is easier for me to run one L.L.OS on these laptops as it makes it easier to trouble shoot issues with any given laptop I have placed with a youth should a problem arise.

Hope this helps,
Janet

Greetings, everyone.
I wish everyone health.

This is my first post on this forum.

I need to understand how many people are still using LL 3.8 x86 (32bit) and in no hurry to change the system?

My native language is Russian ( translated by https://www.deepl.com ).

Purchased 3.8 on DVD and had it shipped to me.

I've been a rush to get an old machine up and going for the grandchildren, and decided to go with Linux Lite.
Once I got that machine up and running with this OS, the machine hasn't had much rest.

Thanks Jerry, we're loving it!!!

Upgraded an older machine from 3.4 (updated) to 3.8. The update did not succeed and was greeted with a black screen...

I didnt know at the time it crashed, thought maybe it was taking a long time so I left the machine running.
I came back 2 days later and was still on black screen, had to hold power button to turn off PC.
On reboot it made a Kernel panic and stopped. Rebooted, same.

I held SHIFT on reboot and reverted back to previous 4.10 kernel and it booted ok.
Then trying to do updates it said installation was broken and I had to do a repair (sorry I didnt take note of the command but I think it was a dpkg --config something). It work on a bunch of packages for awhile and came back to prompt. Rebooted OK so I ran the updates (step 1) .
I had to leave but it seemed to be working. I'll see tommorow.

If you have any tests for me to do, I'll run them also.

Cheers!

I'm sure this release is excellent as the others have been rock solid in the past. Thanks for working on such an incredible project. 6 years and still going strong! Downloading now!

My little HP "Travelbook" is getting this for sure. Put Linux Mint Cinnamon on here a few months back. Man, what was I thinking??? I have Distro-hopping fever again... Haha. Time for something stable! I also will try and put this on my ASUS ROG laptop. Didn't do this with the last release because my touchpad right click button wasn't working. Hopefully the kernel driver update for the Elan touchpad I have in Manjaro now has trickled down to LL.
